Jennifer Corcoran

“Writing and directing your own films is like trying to wake within a dream. As film is a fluid, intuitive medium, it can be the very place where the waking and dreaming worlds merge – a place of possibility.” Jennifer has directed plays, made super-8 shorts, worked as a literary editor, in a herbal apothecary – and home educated her three children. In 2010 she was prompted by a vision to write and direct a cycle of independent feature films about women – but specifically stories that explore our feminine nature. The first feature of the cycle was the award-winning She Sings to the Stars. Am Ocean is the second film of the cycle now in pre-production, a creative collaboration with her daughter, Athena.
